Our tipsters' strongest bets for this meeting

Cf Roberts Electrical & Mechanical Services Mares' Handicap Chase (Challenger Mares' Chase Qual') (Class 3)

Legends Ryde

Analysis
9/1

Handed a couple of tricky assignments so far this season. Well behind subsequent Peterborough Chase-winner Pic D’Orhy at Newton Abbot and behind a couple of smart mares at Market Rasen last time out. Dropped to a mark of 125 here and her sights have been lowered. On this basis, she can run a big race here.

Dahlbury Handicap Chase (Premier Handicap) (GBB Race) (Class 1)

Analysis
15/2

Ran pretty well off a 10lb higher mark when third at Aintree the last time this horse tried a trip in excess of three miles. Well worth giving a go over this new trip. Placed in seven of his 14 starts here, it’s about time he got his head in front. Just failed to give the winner 18lb over three miles at Fakenham two starts ago and the extra distance could help.

15:00
Catesby Estates Handicap Hurdle (Class 3)

Incredibly progressive mare who put in a career-best at Ludlow last time out when winning a Class 2 by seven lengths. Effectively 1lb well in here as she’s due to go up 8lb but reappears under a 7lb penalty. One to keep on side until her limitations are exposed and this looks like a good opportunity to win again.

15:35
Citipost Handicap Hurdle (GBB Race) (Class 2)

Useful hurdler in his novice days, beating a useful sort at Newbury on hurdles debut. Beaten less than three lengths in Aintree’s two-mile Grade 1 novice on his next start. Has a 5lb lower rating over hurdles which connections are looking to exploit and he can win this before returning to fences in the near future. Had wind and back surgery over the summer which will hopefully make things easier for him.

Cheltenham Chase Course
Cheltenham Chase Course

Situated in the picturesque county of Gloucestershire at Prestbury Park, Cheltenham hosts some of the best jump racing in the UK and is one of the most famous National Hunt venues in the world. We have tips for every meeting which always attracts an abundance of quality, from their opening Showcase Meeting in October, to the final race day in April. Cheltenham boasts a plethora of graded contests throughout the season with 14 at the highest level at the famous festival in March, known as ‘The Greatest Show On Turf’.

Course: There are two tracks at Cheltenham, the Old Course and the New Course. They are both left-handed, testing circuits with the former a mile and a half and the latter half a furlong longer. The hurdles tracks are quite different as on the New Course, there are only two hurdles in the final seven furlongs which makes it more a test of stamina. At the Festival, the Old Course is used on the first two days with the New Course playing host the final couple of days.

Feature Meeting: The Cheltenham Festival is undoubtedly the highlight of the National Hunt season. With four days packed with championship race after championship race, it’s a racing lover’s dream. We provide high-quality Cheltenham tips as well as detailed analysis for every race at the Festival.

Cheltenham Festival Tips

Our Cheltenham Festival tips will be posted in the weeks and months before the Festival, focusing initially on the biggest races with the strongest form lines. All our Cheltenham Festival racing tips will be posted as early as possible, although the nature of horse racing declarations means that some (mainly the handicaps) can only be posted the afternoon or evening before.

We make our predictions as a team; each of our expert tipsters spends hours, if not days, researching every race and watching every race in the lead up to the big event. These tips are then discussed in a committee, with the strongest picks for each race being selected as our official Cheltenham Festival tips.

We will have Cheltenham Festival betting tips for every one of the twenty-eight races, with full runner by runner previews as well as the best Cheltenham Festival free bets being offered by the bookmakers.

Cheltenham Betting FAQs

How to bet on Cheltenham?

There are three basic ways you can place a bet at Cheltenham, whether during the Festival or other meets. Below is a list of how to bet on Cheltenham:

Tote Betting. Instead of the bookmakers offering you odds and prices for each horse per race, the Tote will offer you a pooled bet. This means that they will pool the money together for any given race and share this amongst customers with the winning tickets.
Online betting with our partners. With myracing you will be able to access a range of betting partners to place an online bet.
Online betting with the bookmakers. Probably the most popular and common formality to bet on the races at the Cheltenham Festival. All you need to do is sign up with a bookmaker, pick your horse by its number, choose what stake you want to put down and what bet you want to place.
